MAR-ICE Network

Marine Intervention in Chemical Emergencies (MAR-ICE) is a Europe wide network of experts to support maritime actors in the event of chemical emergency response at sea.

How do you get in contact with the network of experts?

1. Get in contact with your authorized national MAR-ICE contact point. In some countries this is the local RCC and in some countries another actor.
a. The national MAR-ICE contact point is appointed by your country.
b. The MAR-ICE network has a list of authorized contact points – other persons/functions will not receive replies from the MAR-ICE network

2. Make sure that you have collected all the information for the MAR-ICE form.

3. Send the form through your national contact point, who will then start the expert support request process with MAR-ICE.

Remember that

  • Requests to the MAR-ICE network are channelled through a dedicated MAR-ICE Contact Point. The services of the network are limited only for the use of designated national authorities who are usually national competent authorities on marine pollution. Your national contact point will stay as the connection point for MAR-ICE throughout the expert information request process.
  • MAR-ICE also provides very specific information – make sure that you have a national chemical expert available to interpret the received information to fit your needs.
